Lost Ben...trade MJD for Newton? **WHIR**

Postby newcombej07 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 7:17 pm

Teams in my sig. Had been holding on to MJD for the playoffs. All I've got behind Ben is Tannehill and Tebow. Trying to claim Kaepernick off waivers.

I figure there's no guarantee MJD comes back, but this is with one of my top competitors within the league. Not sure I have a choice...playoffs start week after next. What say you guys?

As always leave a link, I'll help as well.

WR/RB-Chris Johnson
WR/RB-Marques Colston
WR/TE-Larry Fitzgerald

I'd do it, Newton has a better schedule coming and MJD will probably be rusty.

Yeah, mjd isn't looking good. You gotta be in the win now mode.

I would make the trade

Thanks on mine.

I don't love it, because I'm a Cam hater. But, I think you don't have much choice.

Jennings has looked aweful in MJD's absense. That is more to do with play calling, O line and QB play than just a bad backup RB. Even if MJD comes back, his value is waaaayyyyy diminished with the worst QB in the history of the NFL.

I think if that is your best QB option, you gotta try.

I think its a good trade for you... MJD is good but leg injuries are tough to overcome for a rb... obviously...

I would definitely do it. MJD won't come back 100% imo.

I like the deal for you. Even with a healthy MJD he hasn't done much this year because Jax is always playing from behind. Pull the trigger.

help with mine please?
